I got this email from Kathy Butryn entitled Today Matters Paying Attention to the Time of Our Life. In it she talked about three words (later, soon, and someday) that pull our attention from paying attention to what is important today.
It means that we are waiting for the perfect time that we will want to do something but that time never really gets here. There is a point when we just have to buckle down and do what needs to be done.
There are many ways to help yourself do this. One can utilize a bullet journal for such items or to-do lists or sticky notes but the bottom line is at some point you just HAVE to do it. Don’t let procrastination steal the important things from you.
I like to assign days for specific tasks and I also like to attach tasks to things that I already do, e.g. take my vitamins before bed, work on the checkbook after lunch, do some art on Tuesday and so on.
I am much more productive when I make a list of things I need to do in my bullet journal.
This goes for marriage as well. Later, soon, and someday are not words that enrich a marriage. Sometimes it cannot be helped and you need to put something off until later, but if it can just as easily be done now, your marriage will be better for having done it sooner rather than later.
So, I’m off to consider what to make for dessert, as my man loves his dessert.
Until next time, God bless,
PS. I tried to find a link for the email I received from her but couldn’t find one and her emails are copyrighted. Here’s the link to her website though.
